Coffee & Conversation: Community of Practice
August 19 @ 7:30 am - 8:30 am
Leadership: A Commitment to Human Beings
Are you willing to run headfirst into danger and risk the unknown for someone else? Are you willing to put aside your own interests for the sake of a greater shared vision? Are you willing to work tirelessly to see the aspirations of others reached? Are you willing to act in ways that others will proudly follow?
In this month’s Community of Practice we will discuss one of Simon Sinek’s books; “Leaders Eat Last.” Sinek says if you can humbly and authentically answer yes to the questions above, then you are a leader. In this book he shares story after story of people who make intentional decisions to lead in ways that put the needs of others as the highest priority – a core tenet of servant leadership.
Through learning lessons from the book facilitated by Sophia Partners Executive Director and Learning Facilitator, Christa Williams, and small group discussion with peers, attendees will explore key learning lessons from “Leaders Eat Last” by Simon Sinek:
- Building a Circle of Safety: What is it? How to build one? Why it is important to personal and team leadership.
- Leadership: An awesome responsibility.
- Trust versus Performance: What is more important?
About this Conversation

Community of Practice sessions are amazing opportunities for any and all area leaders to gather and learn from each other. Through these monthly sessions, attendees build, share, and learn from others as a community of servant leaders. It’s highly interactive and each month a different servant leadership topic is explored. The same topic is covered during both sessions monthly (Coffee & Conversation and Leaders Do Lunch).
